DAM (Downstairs At Mother) Art Direction / Branding / Design
Launching a DAM fine platform for creative talent.
Downstairs at Mother London is a huge communal space that’s perfect for hosting events and exhibitions. They often give this space over to emerging creatives but wanted to create a more permanent and prominent platform for showcasing talent.
Mother has always been passionate about unconventional ideas and taking the cutting-edge into the mainstream. Their London home in Shoreditch is in many ways a physical representation of this. We wanted to create an identity that looked like a contemporary gallery but exuded the wit and personality of Mother.
The resulting identity is built around a simple marque that subverts the norm whilst also clearly communicating Downstairs at Mother. What’s more, when used as an acronym it supplies a new approach to communicating the events with the down-to-earth tone of voice that Mother is famous for.
